What Shaggy’s says about the Fun Carver 88
“WHAT IS THIS SKI????
A huge powder inspired 152mm rockered tip – an 88mm frontside friendly waist – and a race inspired stiff flat tail…
Until we name it, we’re calling it the Fun Carver 88. It’s the only name that does it justice. Or maybe we should call it the reverse mullet – party in the front business in the back.
This ski will make you a better skier and people on the chairlift will turn their heads in awe as you rip immaculate slalom turns on a ski with a 150mm + tip!
If you want to make every vertical foot count with tight turns, then hop off the trail in fresh pow – there’s only one ski you want – and it’s this one! It’s weird, funky, and kind of confusing to look at – but the sh!% eating grin on your face after the first run will tell the whole story.
This isn’t a one ski quiver – it’s different. It’s the ski that compliments your true All Mountain skis, (like the Ahmeek 105s you probably already have).
This is the fun carver, it’s extremely easy to initiate those high-G tight slalom inspired turns with the energy and pop of a one year old Siberian Husky. With a moderate flexing tip and rock solid tail, this ski is the whole package, even when you want to let it run medium-to-large radius turns.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Fun Carver 88:
In Front of Toe Piece: 7-9.5
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-8.5
The front half of this ski is much softer than the back half.
We received the Shaggy’s Fun Carver 88 for testing this season. Stay tuned for updates, and let us know of any questions you have regarding this unique ski.

Interesting that they’re mount rec is at -9.5 vs -7 on the Blades. Very intrigued to hear how they ski and the obvious comparison between the two.
If you look at the dimensions the Blade is similar in the tip but 8 mm wider in the tail. This means that the Fun Carver’s waist is probably a bit further back (assuming both have similar sidecut profiles), which is conducive to mounting further back.
Awesome! I’ve been waiting for the review for this ski.
Yes, yes, yes! Please review and DD this ski vs. blade vs. mirus cor!
